Attract and retain talent with data-backed compensation insights

Small and mid-sized enterprises (SMEs) have less resources to attract and retain top talent. On top of competing with large conglomerates with deep pockets of reserves, SME owners also have to outpace fellow SMEs who are equally, if not more hungry for skilled labour. That's why market specific data is so crucial when it comes to planning competitive compensation packages. 

Mercer’s Remuneration Survey for SMEs is a comprehensive database with specific metrics aimed at helping you zoom in on SME-specific data to make swift, informed decisions on compensation management, benefits planning, and policy development.

Beyond mere numbers, Remuneration Survey for SMEs also offers you insights and summaries into the latest market trends in the compensation and benefits world. So whether you’re a growing business or one that’s undergoing restructuring, make salary decisions confidently by adding Remuneration Survey for SMEs to your repertoire of budgeting tools.
